I made this smoothie the other day. It was a nice change from my “go-to” Triple- Berry With Everything But The Kitchen Sink Smoothie. (Recipe coming soon).
As with any smoothie recipe, the ingredients and amounts are all pretty much optional. And if you’ve never tried putting spinach or other greens in your smoothie, trust me, if you blend it well, and don’t add too much, you really won’t know it’s there. (I might recommend you don’t try Romaine lettuce, surprisingly it has a stronger taste than spinach or kale!)
Here’s how you make it: Just put it all in a blender! (See amounts in the recipe below.)
As noted in the recipe, if you don’t have a high-powered blender, start with the milk and spinach. Get that all nice and smooth, then add the rest. If it’s too stiff just add more milk, or even some water.
Oh, and that’s my homemade yogurt in the picture, incase you want to save money by making your own.
Here’s to your health and a comforting, sweet morning.
- 1 handful fresh spinach
- ½ cup coconut milk
- 1 banana
- about 1 cup of frozen tropical fruit mix (strawberries, mango, and pineapple)
- 4-5 peach slices
- ½ cup plain yogurt
- 1 packet stevia, opt.
- Put all ingredients in the blender in the order listed.
- If you don't have a Vita Mix or something similar, start with just the spinach and milk and blend until smooth, then add the remaining ingredients.
